Jim Zorn, Baltimore Ravens new quarterbacks coachVery exciting news today from Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh, via Jamison Hensley and the Baltimore Sun, as Jim Zorn will take over quarterback coach duties for the Ravens.

I think Joe Flacco, Troy Smith (if he’s around) and John Beck will learn a great deal from a position coach who ran a huddle during NFL games. Zorn also has head coaching experience, even if the situation and results were not ideal for he or the Redskins.

I’m also curious about the impact Zorn could have on the team’s wide receivers. He played almost his entire career with Hall of Fame wide receiver Steve Largent in Seattle, so maybe some hidden gems will be suggested to his stable of QB’s, enhancing the passing game and, outside of Derrick Mason, improving wide-out production.

And it probably will not be an issue chemistry-wise, but will be interesting to see the dynamic between offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and Zorn, both recent head coaches who I’m sure are interested in moving back up the ladder.

Lots of things to pay attention to, but overall a hire that I’m very happy about. Welcome to Baltimore, Coach Zorn.
